I see this time and time again, and I must confess Im guilty of doing this at times, but is it really so wrong making a post hoping that people will compliment you? Personally I dont think its so horrible. An ego boost is great sometimes, but I see a lot of people really getting a lot of crap for it pretty consistantly. What's your oppinion on the subject? let me know in the comments below.
its not wrong but i do find it a bit sad technically, you could boost yourself up, or even better, just being so 'up' all by yourself all the time so that you don't even need a boost at all:)
and don't get me wrong, its not sad sad... but i would find it really sad if I needed a boost from somebody to make ME feel better. because if thats the way i would think, i'd be dependent on other people to feel good. or in other words, its like, im not in control of wether i feel good or not. and this is absolutely NOT the case for me... im the only one that gets to choose how i feel :D
but we don't share the same POV regarding this subject. if you don't feel wrong doing it, then just keep doing it:)

It just makes the asker seem very vain, narcissistic, self-absorbed, self-centered... you get the idea.
I don't see it as wrong per se. But I find it sad NOT because of what others said: "sad because you needed a boost from somebody to make ME feel better. "
I find it sad, simply because DEEEEp down, you know you asked for it. You know people will tend to please you. You know that any opinion you're gonna hear will be biased by the fact that you actually did it with that intent in mind, or actualy asked for it. Deep down, you know they might be fake. This at least makes you doubt it. It's MUCH more rewarding to receive a compliment without asking for it. Even if it's not directed to you (like you hear others gossiping nice stuff about you to other people)
1) fishing for compliments makes you look shallow and insecure.
2) a solicited compliment means nothing since you had to ask for it. Unexpected praise is always better. Would you really appreciate a happy birthday wish from someone if you knew the only reason they gave it to you was because you said "please tell me happy birthday?" A compliment is no different.
If I see a woman posting a status fishing for compliments, I usually just agree with whatever negative thing she said about herself. For example, of a girl says "oh I'm so ugly" on FB, I'll just comment "yep" for lolz.
It's natural People who hates you or don't like you are probably jealous of you Like you're very good looking or gorgeous I should say... and if you do have that quality then it isn't bad to fish for compliments it's just that you deserve them 😊
I don't think it's wrong. Everyone likes getting compliments, especially online in forums like this which seem to attract a really large number of people with insecurities. However, I do think it's wrong when mostly girls post pics of a girl in a bikini with a sixpack or undoubtedly fit body, ask if they're fat, then bitch at commenters who say anything other than 'no girl you're crazy, your body is amazing'. mrwgifs.com/.../Girl-Fight-Slap-Reaction-Gif.gif
If people do not like when people post pictures in the proper section how do I look then they need to block the category. Some users keep whining and complaining about people doing that yet they keep returning to that section I don't get why these users don't just block it. what did they expect in the how do I look section?
Honestly, it's rude. It takes time out of my day and the other mod's days to sit and babysit someone's post because they're looking for a solution to their problem in the wrong place. If you are a grown woman feeling like you need an "ego boost", you need a therapist.
All the outside attention in the world isn't going to fill a hole created your own insecurities. That's something you need to be able to take care of yourself. Only YOU can make yourself feel good about YOU.
It isn't wrong since we all need our little ego boost once in a while. Only if you 1. Don't do it too often or people will get annoyed 2. Lie about things. Like 'I'm soooo fat' and then you see someone who's clearly not fat. Maybe you really do think you're fat, but if you don't, don't say you think you do. 3. Watch out you don't think too full of yourself 4. Watch out that you don't objectify yourself or you'll get insecure and shallow. You're more than just your appearance.
To me that's telling me how strong the person really are. You see, if someone's posting a lot of pictures and texts asking for compliments, I get the idea of that person being weak and having a need of other peoples axceptens.
